As some of you know, my oldest kid has autism. We take this autism stuff pretty seriously and as a result he has made remarkable gains. Indeed, to the untrained eye he is indistinguishable from his neuro-typical peers.
Last weekend four of the kiddos did a triathlon. When “Number One Son” finished the running component too early, it was obvious he got confused somewhere along the way. Turns out he went around the wrong pylon cutting the run short.
That evening my… Continue

Have you ever been told you have a bad attitude? I have. While I was not sure if the person’s assessment of me was correct—I’d never been told that—I did take some time to ponder over the criticism.
What causes one to have a bad attitude? Can it be fixed? How can I guarantee that I will always project a good attitude?
What I found is that there are a myriad of things which causes us to have poor attitudes: the lack of money, too much… Continue

You know my husband and my kids are my whole life. I couldn't imagine my life without them. The love I have for them is stronger than anything I have ever felt before in my life. I can't explain it and before they came along I have never had a feeling so strong. My husband is a loving, affectionate wonderful husband and father whom I adore and my kids are just my pride and joy. They make me laugh, smile and definitely keep me on my toes. The power of loving someone and to be love its the most… Continue

My little man broke his foot. Running and playing outside. Gabby for some reason decided to push him. When she did, he fell. The way he landed it broke. Since Mason is as tall as I am its hard to carry him. He had to go to the doctor to get an x-ray. So my step dad had a walker from his knee surgery he loaned us. It was quite a sight seeing him with this walker that you see older people using. When we went to the orthopedic doctor for his cast. The doctors office is by a big hospital. We had to… Continue

I never thought the day would come, the when both my children play with one another. My son who has autism and my daughter has CRS, two different forms of disabilities, how could they meet in the center and play. They knew each other was there but did not play one on one. I used to sit with both of them and use hand over hand and make them play together. I would always be there helping them play together. Then one day out of the blue he walked… Continue

Have you been having trouble trying to "sell your products or business opportunity" to people? Did you know that 97% of the population does NOT like to be sold. As soon as you start talking they will either tune you out or hang up on you? That can get pretty frustrating, can't it?
What if I told you there was a way to determine a person's personality based on the way they answer certain questions? Michael Dloughy's… Continue

I'm afraid the oink is upon me, but because I've had the symptoms for 6 days i can't have the anti virals, also I have developed some sort of bad chest infection on top of it for which i am taking horse tablet sized antibiotics that are for treating pneumonia so i guess they are strong.
At the moment i am quarantined to the house unable to move much because if i start walking i start coughing horrendously and my chest sounds like a set of bag pipes deflating, the horrible aches have… Continue

It's been almost a full two weeks since my old camera got sent out for repairs. I felt strange not having it around for those impromptu shots throughout the day. And I just about panicked not having it for all the great activities we've been doing. It's been quite a pendulum swing I guess- there are hardly any photos from the early years of our marriage- it was such a bother to pick up film, get it printed, and then deal with all the prints afterwards. I remember being apprehensive about the… Continue

My little guy pretty much lives on snacks these days. I don't like it, but I guess that's the diet of a toddler? So naturally I've been on the look out for at least healthier snacks that he'll eat. I first saw Snikiddy snacks at Babies R Us one time while shopping and I popped open the bag for Easy right there in the store. (I do this often now. hehe) He loved them. So when I had the opportunity to review Snikiddy snacks and realized they had more options to choose from I was… Continue

If you are like many people, you have put your blood, sweat and tears into creating the "Perfect" website, you have all the cool gadgets, and have found the latest and greatest products that everyone MUST HAVE. Now what? It's not going to do you a darn bit of good if you don't market yourself. If no one knows you're there, all your effort will be for not.

Lythm has a wonderful sea front with the sea going out for miles leaving… Continue

Be aware of what and how much you eat. This simple concept will save you from hundreds upon hundreds of calories each week.
To apply this rule, don't eat while your attention is distracted by another activity. Only put food in your mouth when you are hungry and conscious of it. This means turn off the T.V., get out of your car, and no matter what you… Continue

The Tale of the Dung Beetle
By Pamela Victor
My daughter Sierra, her friend Hope (oh! how this name foreshadows our tale!) and I were walking the dog early one summer morn. The weather was, for once, lovely. Not too hot. Not too cool. Not too buggy even. The girls brought a carrot each, a treat for our neighbor's fine equine companions. Birds chirped. Wind whispered. Girls giggled. All was well in our little piece of the world.
My little nature girl, Sierra, cried out… Continue

I have a theory (hold on to your hats!). I’ve had this theory for awhile now, at least a few years…now I shall share it with you.
My theory states that one way to make the world a happy, easy-going place is to enjoy some good sex. Sounds easy, right? Apparently not. I’m mostly speaking to the women of my audience since it’s a bit harder for us to, ummm, finish.
Think about the last time you truly had an orgasm. Didn’t you feel at peace, like all is right with the world?… Continue
